WMS-CLIENT-HOWTO - No mention of MAP PROJECTION requirement

Reported by: dmorissette Owned by: jmckenna@…
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: Documentation - MapServer Version: 3.5
Severity: minor Keywords:


In order to avoid blank maps problems with the WMS Connectiontype, a projection 
at the MAP level is required.

There should be a mention about this at the beginning of section "Mapfile 
"A PROJECTION must be set in the mapfile for the MAP unless you are sure that 
all your WMS layers support only a single projection which is the same as the 
PROJECTION of the map.  The MAP PROJECTION can be set using 
"init=epsg:xxxx" codes or using regular PROJ4 parameters.  Failure to set a MAP 
PROJECTION may result in blank maps coming from remote WMS servers (because of 
inconsistent BBOX+SRS combination being used in the WMS cnonection URL)."
